A great way for a child to learn about one of the states in the USA is to spend time in it and experience it for yourself. Sometimes, though, you can’t go to every state in US, so you have to find another good way to experience it, and that is to read about it. The following book will help your little ones learn about Indiana.

Teaching the ABCs

Parents and teachers alike look for fun ways to teach children the alphabet, and Rubber Ducky Press’ founder, publisher, and author of ABC Indiana, Adriane Doherty has the same sentiments. She has created a fun way for children to learn the English alphabet while also getting special knowledge about the state. In ABC Indiana, a child will learn the English alphabet while also discovering the fun places that make up the Hoosier state. But that’s not all. There is a friendly ducky that takes the children on their adventure across the state. Children will challenge themselves to seek and find the hidden ducky somewhere on each of the pages for the children.

It comes as a board book with sturdy pages that are safe for youngsters to enjoy.

Kirsten Halvorsen’s illustrations bring to life the story that Adriane lays out about the different items that make up Indiana in ABC Indiana.
